Gotham Season 5: What to Expect From the Final Season

Aaron Sagers Oct 17, 2018

The cast and creators gave us a lot of info about what to expect from Gotham Season 5.

Batman is on his way to Gotham. First, however, the Fox series named after the comic book metropolis has ten episodes left in its fifth and final season run before the hero arrives. And for Dark Knight to rise, Gotham must fall.

And fall it shall, based on the news to come out of last week's Gotham panel at New York Comic Con. The biggest revelation was that the tenth and final episode would jump a decade into Gotham’s future, and feature Batman, as well as a portly Penguin in a top hat, with umbrella and monocle. It's not the only instance the season will be playing with time.

“We pick up at the top of season five, at the conclusion of No Man's Land, Day 365,” showrunner John Stephens told Den of Geek.

Gotham Batsuit inspired by The Dark Knight Rises

During the New York Comic Con last weekend, it was confirmed by Gotham producer John Stephens that Batman will appear in the season five finale, as the final episode of the Fox series skips ten years ahead to give us a peek at Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) future once he dons the cape and cowl.

Now, chatting to BamSmackPow, Stephens has been discussing the design of Gotham’s Batsuit, stating that it will be similar to the one worn by Christian Bale’s Batman in The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, as well as the pressure of living up to fan expectations when it comes to Batman’s costume.

“It’s inspired by, if I had to compare to any one costume, I’d say it’s closer to The Dark Knight Rises,” said Stephens. “It’s a little more metallic Bat battle-y looking rather than something

Gotham Showrunner Teases How Batman’s Suit Will Look In Season 5

It’s official – Batman’s coming to Gotham in next year’s fifth and final season. It’s been confirmed that the series finale will jump forward 10 years to a point when the young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) has graduated to become the legendary Dark Knight. And it sounds like we won’t just have some pointy-eared figure in the shadows or maybe just a brief shot of Mazouz donning the cowl but rather, a full-on appearance by the Caped Crusader.

While speaking at New York Comic Con, Gotham showrunner John Stephens was on hand to tease that the show will feature a completely new version of the Batsuit. But what will it look like, as Batman’s threads came in all sorts of different designs? Well, the exec producer confirmed that, in terms of movie costumes, it’s closest to the version Christian Bale wore in The Dark Knight Rises

BossLogic Imagines Dave Bautista as Bane in Suicide Squad 2

BossLogic Imagines Dave Bautista as Bane in Suicide Squad 2
BossLogic skillfully transforms Dave Bautista into a comic faithful version of Bane for Suicide Squad 2. Earlier this week, it was revealed that former Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is in talks with Warner Bros. to write and possibly direct Suicide Squad 2, which quickly led to Bautista volunteering for a role on social media. The actor's involvement in the project is far from official, but DC fans seem to think that he'd make for a great Bane.

Fan artist BossLogic heard what the DC fans were saying and drafted up a piece that shows Dave Bautista as the villainous Bane. The character has shown up on the big screen twice before in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and 1997's Batman and Robin, but both directors took a much different approach to the way that the character looked, largely ignoring the comics. BossLogic has brought Bane

Stunning Suicide Squad 2 Fan Art Imagines Dave Bautista As Bane

When it was announced yesterday that Guardians of the Galaxy helmsman James Gunn had been hired to write and possibly direct the planned Suicide Squad 2, the internet offered a range of passionate responses, and among this sea of takes were those wondering how actor Dave Bautista could get involved.

Once the Drax the Destroyer portrayer himself implied that he’d be keen to land a role in the upcoming DC flick, the imaginations of fans were fired up, and this new artwork from BossLogic provides one interpretation of how Bautista could look in the role of Bane.

Modeled on a Drax character poster for Guardians, the image offers a vastly different rendition of the villain from his last big screen portrayal in The Dark Knight Rises. Though the Tom Hardy version fit in with Nolan’s relatively grounded take on Gotham City, here the neon green and moody greys

Dave Bautista Is Eager To Join James Gunn’s ‘Suicide Squad 2’

Dave Bautista Is Eager To Join James Gunn’s ‘Suicide Squad 2’
It didn’t take long for Dave Bautista to respond to the news that James Gunn will be writing and possibly directing Suicide Squad 2. The wrestler-turned-actor took to Twitter and said “Where do I sign up!” when Gunn’s new gig was announced.

Bautista worked with Gunn on the first two Guardians of the Galaxy movies as Drax, who has since become a fan favorite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But when Gunn was fired by Disney for offensive tweets that resurfaced, Bautista became a very vocal supporter of Gunn. He has said that working for Disney has been “pretty nauseating” and has questioned his return to the third installment of the Guardians franchise, which has been put on hold since Gunn’s firing.

When he tweeted his willingness to join Suicide Squad 2, fans immediately gave suggestions of who he could play including an iteration of Bane (originally

Latest Joker set photos feature the Clown Prince of Crime and his goons

Just Jared has got its hands on a new batch of spy photos from the set of Warner Bros. and DC Films’ Joker movie, which offer up more shots of Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck in full-on Clown Prince of Crime mode.

Next 3 Tom Hardy Movies: 'Fonzo,' 'War Party,' 'Mad Max: The Wasteland'

Ten years ago, Tom Hardy's ferocious performance in Nicolas Winding Refn's scathing indie drama Bronson brought wider attention to the actor's capabilities. He's never been one to shy away from big-budget Hollywood productions, either; he became known to a wider audience in Christopher Nolan's Inception. From there, he was off and running, starring notably in Warrior, Locke, The Drop, Legend, and TV's Taboo, as well as The Dark Knight Rises, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Revenant. His latest starring role in Venom (above) has won plaudits from nearly everyone, even though the film itself received not-so-great reviews. The superhero tale easily topped the box office, earning an estimated $80 million. What's next for the talented...

'Venom' and the Physicality of Tom Hardy

'Venom' and the Physicality of Tom Hardy
With Venom, Tom Hardy tackles a physical challenge different from those that have come before. He plays Eddie Brock, a journalist who achieves symbiosis with an alien looking to share his body, in a role that forces Hardy two be of two minds in one body.

It's an interesting proposition for the actor, who has made physical transformations and physicality a key part of his performances. Bulky and imposing, Hardy as the villainous Bane is perhaps his most memorable physical look. And yet, the villain from The Dark Knight Rises (2012) bears uncanny similarity to two earlier characters, from Bronson (2009) and ...

20 X-Men Fan Castings Better Than What We Got

X-Men was the hit that kicked off the current age of comic book movies that has come to define blockbusters in the 21st century. There are now eleven movies in that universe and counting, with Dark Phoenix and New Mutants still on the way, as well as other films announced before the eventual Disney takeover of 20th Century Fox and all of its assets. Even when this happens, the X-Men will likely be folded into the McU, so there are no signs of stopping or even slowing down for Marvel’s merry mutants.

Even in the current comic book movie climate, the X-Men franchise is unique, as it is the only major franchise of this type to have never done a complete reboot. These reboots are common, after all. The Amazing Spider-Man followed only a few years on the heels of Spider-Man 3 and Batman v Superman was released only

Tom Hardy’s Top 10 Films, Ranked

  • Variety
Tom Hardy’s Top 10 Films, Ranked
Tom Hardy lunges onto megaplex screens this weekend as the super-powerful title character in “Venom.” So we thought it might be a good time to rank the award-winning actor’s Top 10 earlier screen performances, to better appreciate his prodigious talent and impressive versatility.

10. Inception (2010)

In Christopher Nolan’s fantastical sci-fi thriller about a team of dreamweavers hired to break and enter into a businessman’s subconscious, Hardy plays Eames, a master forger and identity thief, with a showboating sense of sartorial splendor and the confident cunning of someone who’s already read the script and knows he’ll awake in good shape.

9. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

As the brutish Bane of Batman’s existence, Hardy repeatedly illustrates the accuracy of the adage that actions speak louder (or at least more intelligibly) than words. Just as important, however, he potently underscores in key scenes the similarities between supervillain and cult leader

Why Tom Hardy Can Be So Hard to Understand

In late 2011 when audiences saw the Imax prologue of The Dark Knight Rises ahead of Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, they made a startling discovery: Many of them couldn't understand Tom Hardy, who played the villainous, mask-wearing Bane with a pronounced accent. It seemed like a sound-mixing problem, but when The Dark Knight Rises opened seven months later, it sparked a narrative about the actor that persists today: He's just hard to understand onscreen.

That legend continued to build later in 2012 with Lawless, which saw critics have a field day with his Southern accent. "Mr. Hardy mostly grunts, growls and ...

Film Review: ‘Venom’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Venom’
In “Venom,” the spectacular but mostly derivative and generically plotted new comic-book origin story (it’s the first installment of the Sony Universe of Marvel Characters), Tom Hardy is afflicted with an otherworldly force that invades his mind, his body, his very being. It’s called the desire to act like a stumblebum Method goof. The symptoms, which are highly visible and dramatic, range from a propensity for bug-eyed staring to a tendency to swallow each line with a kind of renegade doofus mumble, in a way that leaves Hardy sounding like a cross between early Marlon Brando and late Adam Sandler.

As anyone who saw his silky and cutting performance in “Locke” can attest, Tom Hardy is one of the smartest actors around. So why, in “Venom,” does it seem like he’s doing his impersonation of a benignly inarticulate stoner clown who’s only got half his marbles?

Venom Review: Spider-Man Villain Movie is a Gooey Mess

The Venom movie has split personality issues that rival those of his comic book counterpart.

Credit where credit is due: A solo Venom movie has been in development for a long time (11 years), and a number of filmmakers have worked hard over the years to make it a reality. But the idea of making a movie based around one of Spider-Man’s admittedly most popular villains after his first big screen appearance in 2007’s Spider-Man 3 fell somewhat short of expectations is one that’s always carried a certain amount of creative risk.

Making a movie centered solely on Venom, minus the participation of Spider-Man, has ever seemed a dubious proposition, like making a movie about the Joker without Batman (uh… wait a minute). Heroes and villains complement each other and play off each other in ways that are essential to the development of both; even Venom’s iconic physical
